I just talked to Thing One's special ed teacher. She said "I've got to tell you what Thing One said on Tuesday". Uh oh, never good when they start a conversation like that. When you've got a quirky kid, you just never know what they might announce to the world!
In celebration of Red Ribbon Week, they had a guessing contest: how many fireballs are in the jar. Winner gets the contents. Thing One insisted he couldn't participate because "I didn't study last night, Ms. Beth, I'm sorry!". She tried to explain the concept to him and he stood firm on his: I didn't study, I"m not able to guess."
Yes indeed, every so often we get a new chuckle from his quirks!
